we're going to get determined leadership from mitt romney. i think he has taken occasionally attractive positions, but leadership, no. speaking to you from new york city, this storm and its aftermath, this externality to the big election is a big enough deal that it is not surprising it's having an effect on the election. its exact effect i think is still unknown. i am, i think, its exact effect could not have been foretold. i'm not sure we know exactly where it's going to end up, but there's been an important, important development in the race post-debate. that endorsement today by mayor michael bloomberg following that endorsement from colin powell and that image, right there, these images that we have seen of president obama and new jersey republican governor chris christie responding together and touring the damage together, this emphatic visual rebuke to the republican closing argument that president obama can never work with republicans. this isn't israel invading egypt in 1956, but this is a real deal and rare october surprise that could affect this election and honestly nobody s
